5 This is the release notes for [[XWiki Commons>>http://commons.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Rendering>>http://rendering.xwiki.org]] and [[XWiki Platform>>http://platform.xwiki.org]]. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.

7 This release brings a more mature version of the edit conflict resolution UI, display of disabled users in the User Directory, more consistent UI by using Icon Themes in the Live Table and more streamlined template provider creation. Admins also benefit from the improvements added to the conflict resolution UI, but at the Extension Manager level, and get more help for making the right choices when wanting to delete a user (to avoid the mess of broken page rights). Developers now have multiple options for asynchronous rendering of various elements and more control over the rendering of templates.

75
76 == General Notes ==
77
78 * When upgrading make sure you compare and merge the following XWiki configuration files since some parameters may have been modified, removed or added:
79 ** ##xwiki.cfg##
80 ** ##xwiki.properties##
81 ** ##web.xml##
82 ** ##hibernate.cfg.xml##
83 * Add ##xwiki.store.migration=1## in ##xwiki.cfg## so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to any new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.
84
85 == Issues specific to XWiki 11.8 ==
86
87 * The {{code}}disabled{{/code}} property introduced on XWikiUsers objects in {{info}}XWiki 11.6RC1{{/info}} has been removed. The existing property {{code}}active{{/code}} should be use instead. You can read more about this on [[this specific note>>ReleaseNotes.Data.XWiki.11\.8RC1.Change005]].
88 * The value returned by ##PropertyClass#getFieldFullName()## for a **meta** property has changed: the meta property name is prefixed with the property type, e.g. the value returned for the "editor" meta property of a TextArea object property is "TextArea_editor". The value returned by ##PropertyClass#getFieldFullName()## for a **class** property has not changed.
